    South Louisiana Life

    Added some new images of south LA to the beginning of my new work gallery:

    Nice work Ed! You certainly get around. I know you just entered the Four by Five exhibit but take a look at this one as well:

    I don't know about Ed, but I clicked on it and man do you guys bring back some memories. Is Mary's Tavern still there? What about the Half Moon? Not that I frequented those places - the former during my mid teens as a dare with my best friend and the latter when I was maybe 5 or 6 with my father who was in commercial real estate. My "hood" was a few blocks down towards Canal street: Thalia & Coliseum (1118 and 1301 - right across from the Coliseum Theatre).

    Ed: IMHO, the photos generally lack impact and intimacy. A Voodo Shop? I thought it was a take-out window until I saw the sign on the far right. Try experimenting with different films - I bet IR would work for some - and getting CLOSER for others. I bet the occasional soft focus would work as would a lith print, here and there.

    Thomas,

    You have to remember that these are LF - they depend on fine detail and tonality, which is, of course, useless on the WWW. (If I only shot for the WWW, I would use a Canon s90 set to vivid.) If you want in your face intimate, shoot 35mm. My boucherie shots were mostly with a 24mm, which is blood on the shoes close.

    Very nice work!

    Where are the plantation ruins located?

    I've been shooting ruins of churches in the costal areas of South Carolina.

    Windsor plantation is outside Port Gibson, MS. It is the subject of a famous photo by Clarence John Laughlin. It burned more than 100 years ago, and is remarkably unchanged from when he photographed it in the 1940s.

    Is the Tchoupitoulas Plantation across the river on (I believe) River Rd. still around? It had a colorful history and was a great place to take dates to.
